Sojourner Truth

Sojourner Truth was born an American slave in the late 1700's. She was freed and became a strong voice for both abolition and for women's rights. She is famous for her "Ain't I a Woman" speech and has been widely honored - including appearing on a postage stamp in 1986 and having the NASA Mars Pathfinder named "Sojourner" in her honor. For more on these topics, see the features on the American Civil Rights Movement, Black History Month, Women's History Month and the Women's Rights Movement.
